The Great Gatsby is written by F.Scott Fitzgerald and considered to be his masterpiece.However in 1925 no one predicted the success of it,and now it is listed in the top 100 novels of 20 century.

The novel is about Gatsby and narrated by Nick.The story took place in the summer of 1922.Nick is tired of his hometown’s life so that he moves to New York from the Midwest of America.He rents a small house that is next to a villa owned by a millionaire called Gatsby.He is a mysterious man who often holds extravagant parties but seldom shows up.Five years ago,Gatsby falls in love with a wealthy girl—Daisy,but he comes from a poor family.First World War broke out,he had to join the army.Then Daisy marries to a young man called Tom,from upper class.Gatsby makes a fortune by bootlegging illegally.He buys a mansion just opposite to the Daisy’s house.The reason why Gatsby holds big party is that he hope Daisy could come here.But Daisy has change to a selfish and vulgar woman.With the help of Nick,Gatsby meets his lover.In the end,Gatsby was killed as scapegoat of Daisy.Nobody cares about his death except Nick,Daisy and Tom are on the way to Europe.

Why did author consider character as “The Great Gatsby”?In my opinion,Gatsby is different from the corrupt people from upper class,he has dream,he keep watch the love and hope.He tries to become rich just want to be together with Daisy.Even though she has married to Tom,Gatsby still stares at the green light hung at the clock of Daisy’s house under the moonlight for many times.But after Gatsby died,his lover even doesn’t send a flower.In a wider sense,the book shows us the process of the disillusionment of Gatsby’s dream.His dream is the epitome of American dream—pursuit of life,liberty and happiness.Gatsby works hard to rise above from lower class,but the reality is that the nobility exclude him and look down upon him.Class structure is based and it’s hopeless to integrate into upper society.So the novel expresses the deep sense of powerlessness and youngster’s disillusionment faced with limits and realities of society and class mobility.
